    Did you know that papers in space science are among the most quoted? Check how your country is doing .... you will be surprised :)

    In terms of country based quotations ("Most scited countries") I cannot access space science, only Geosciences, Immunology, Material Science, and Psychiatry & Psychology.

    But when I first saw the list of countries at the left under "Impact in Science" I saw Argentinia was on top, and USA was on last position. Yes, I was surprised, until I realised that is was just an alphabetical order.

    Did you see the same list?
    scotland's a separate country. must be preparing for independence already. and it's highest percentage is for space science. crazy
    Dajan, you need to click on the country you are interested in ....
    Nooo, can't be THAT simple.
    data a bit old ....
    newer data (but less well presented) at

    there you can also read:
    "The 20th century was largely dominated by the US as a major powerhouse of scientific research and innovation, with 40% of the papers indexed in the Web of Science fielded by US scientists in the 1990s. By 2009, that figure was down to 29%. The US now struggles to keep pace with increased output from Europe and Asia."

    Interestingly, Space Science is the only field in which my country has positive "Impact vs. world" value (even more interestingly as we don't even have a proper national space agency)...
    this might also be an indication / point to an issue with their data concerning space science publications ... quite surprising indeed that all Europeans are doing so well in this field
    Something should be wrong, for Spain I can read:
    Economics & Business 4.54 -28
    Only minus 28!
